Braces & Orthodontics in Covington, KY
At Applegate Dentistry, patients can achieve the smile results they've always wanted with comprehensive orthodontic treatment. Dr. Barry Applegate provides personalized care to help you achieve a straighter, healthier, beautiful smile! Our practice offers both SureSmile clear aligner therapy and traditional metal braces. With our dentist's expertise and advanced technology, we deliver top orthodontic treatment in Covington, KY and beyond, designed to meet your needs and budget!
Orthodontic Consultation with Digital Technology
Your orthodontic treatment will begin with a consultation with Dr. Applegate! You'll experience our cutting-edge technology, including the iTero® Intraoral Scanner, to digitally create accurate 3D models of your teeth, eliminating the need for uncomfortable traditional impressions.
During the consultation, our experienced team will also consider your lifestyle and address any questions or concerns you may have. We believe successful outcomes result from collaboration and understanding between the orthodontist and patient.
Applegate Dentistry offers SureSmile® as an excellent option for clear braces. These removable plastic trays provide both comfort and convenience. SureSmile® aligners are virtually invisible, allowing you to undergo treatment discreetly. Additionally, you can remove the trays for easy oral hygiene maintenance, minimizing the risk of tooth decay and gum disease.
Unlike traditional metal braces, SureSmile® does not have dietary restrictions, allowing you to enjoy your favorite foods. The average duration of SureSmile treatment at our practice is between 12 and 18 months — after your short treatment time, you'll enjoy a straighter, more confident smile!
Traditional Metal Braces
We may recommend traditional metal braces for patients with more complex orthodontic needs. Modern metal braces are designed to be smaller and flatter, significantly improving comfort compared to braces systems of the past. Applegate Dentistry will customize your braces experience to you to express your individuality and personal style. With their proven track record, traditional metal braces offer reliable and predictable results for achieving a straight and properly aligned smile.
Retainers and Post-Orthodontic Treatment
Once you have completed your braces treatment, Dr. Applegate will provide you with a custom-fitted retainer to help maintain your results!
We prioritize your long-term dental health and will guide you through the post-orthodontic phase to help you maintain your beautiful smile. Lost your retainer? Let us know, and we'll help you replace it as soon as possible!
